Open house set May 2 to learn about Hwy 63 paving north of Rochester

ROCHESTER, Minn. – The public is invited to an open house Wednesday, May 2 in Zumbro Falls to learn more about the Highway 63 paving project between Rochester and Zumbro Falls, which begins next month, according to the Minnesota Department of Transportation.

Representatives of MnDOT and Croell, Inc., the MnDOT construction contractor, will be available to answer questions and provide information from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. at Zumbro Falls City Hall, which is adjacent to the community’s fire station.

Croell, Inc., the New Hampton, Iowa prime contractor, will begin construction on May 7. The highway will be resurfaced with concrete and culverts will be replaced. Highway 63 will be closed to through traffic during the project, but residents and businesses along the route will have access. Northbound through traffic will be detoured to Highway 52 north to Highway 60 east to Zumbro Falls. Southbound traffic will follow the route in reverse.

During the May 2 open house, people may drop by at any time during the session to offer feedback, ask questions and learn more about the project. No formal presentation is planned.
